Danica's wreck looked vicious. Glad she was ok. She did exactly what I thought she should had. She kept her car clean, ran the bottom almost the whole time, which I figured was the safer area to be at not to be swept up if someone got turned. Ironically her being on the bottom is what got her. McMurray came down on Aric taking out Danica. She raced smart though & didnt do any silly crap that some new drivers does on these tracks. So kudos to her.
I see Ryans team still hasnt figured out his overheating problem. (Which tony didnt seem to have) Ryan I guess said his car had no power before the overheating, so hopefully they figure something out when they replace their engine. Also I hope TG goes over & asks Addington for some secrets on keeping the car cooler. Ryan never tried to tandem draft or do anything that typicaly over heats these engines. In fact he was running by himself when the car was over 290 degrees.
I know Nascar likes the idea of wrecks here so it inspires the standard fan, but putting teams in a box so their engines blow because they have to stop the tandem (safer) racing, is BS. The 500 is a longer race with more cars. Which means more time at the higher RPM's & less clean air to cool the cars. This is a recipe for disaster. Nothing like crowning a winner through attrition.
So congrats to Tony, good Job Danica for driving a smart race. The innocent always seems to get wrecked while the guy causing it races on, at plate tracks. & Please God help Gibson to get a car to make it 500 miles.
I am glad the car lasted so Ryan could salvage a 9th place finish.
